Anthony Barrowcliffe of FHP Property Consultants has brokerered an industrial letting on the Millennium Business Park in Mansfield to Oceanair UK, an existing occupier of the estate.

Oceanair UK is a distributor of air conditioning and heating products. Its existing air conditioning business has seen growth in the domestic air conditioning market and a “massive” growth in air to water heat pumps ahead of traditional boilers being banned in new builds from 2025.

The deal includes an industrial unit of 6,597 sq ft including warehouse space.

Barrowcliffe said: “Unit 3C Isabella Court is personally my ninth completed industrial transaction in the Mansfield area this year with a further three properties under offer. The Mansfield area is a fantastic industrial market with excellent access to the M1 and huge employment opportunities. The unit in its isolation was a great letting for both landlord and tenant and it was a pleasure to work with Tony Evanson, Managing Director of Oceanair UK Limited, who was honest, straightforward and did everything promised to a high professional level.”

Tony Evanson, managing director of Oceanair UK, added: “We have been delighted with the service we have received from FHP and in particular Anthony, he was attentive to our needs and understood the speed at which we had to move. As gas boilers are being phased out in favour of air source heat pumps it was imperative we increased our storage capability to keep up with demand, Anthony worked closely with us and expedited the whole transaction in a very timely manner, something rare in these Covid times.”
